We will be publishing what we are learning during each term throughout the year. Watch this space to see what is happening in Term 5 in and out of the classroom and for useful information for Maple and Redwood classes.
Year 2 have been thoroughly engaged with our puppets topic this term. So far, they have had the opportunity to make shadow puppets, learn about the history of puppet making as well as watching clips of various puppet shows over the years. They are now very excited to create their designs for their very one hand/ glove puppets. Currently, they have cut out their templates and we are starting to stitch them together this week. We can’t wait to share them with you once they are finished!
In maths, we have been using our reasoning skills to help explain that a fraction is part of a whole. This has then helped us to understand the difference between unit and non – unit fractions.
In Literacy, we have been learning a warning story called the magic brush. We have used freeze frames to think about how a character feels in the story and used it to inspire our own story writing.
The children in Year 2 have been been looking at different emotions in the story they are reading- take a look at their reactions!
Year 2 pupils have been very busy making puppets. They have enjoyed learning about where puppets originate as well as their history. They even presented their own puppet show.
